The last time I saw this cutie she was a newborn and now she is 9 months old and as cute as can be. We managed to get a lot of smiles out of her last week.

Here are a couple of her adorable smiles:

This adorable baby girl was the perfect little model for me yesterday. I loved holding her and photographing her was a dream. She is small for 3 weeks old but with  eating every hour it won’t be long before she’s a big girl;  which is why it’s so important to catch these moments before they pass.

Have a look at this perfect little doll!

Family Reunion! (Winnipeg Event Photographers)

I had the honour of photographing this family reunion at the Canad Inn on Saturday. Pictured here you can see the grandparents with their 6 grandchildren. It was the first time in 15 years that this family had been together. I can understand how wonderful that would be for these grandparents as one of my sons lives in Calgary and it has been a while since my whole family has been together.

I don’t think this family could have given a better gift for their 50th wedding anniversary than their presence at this event.

This is one of the granddaughters with her boyfriend. Aren’t they cute!

Yesterday was session number 3 for this cutie pie. Miss S is 8 months old now and she just keeps getting cuter and cuter. Miss S’s parents bought the Baby’s First Year Plan and so they will get 4 sessions plus a photo book at the end of the first year! It’s the perfect way to document the first year of your child’s life. Let me know if you or someone you know might be interested in this package.

If you read this blog post, mention it to me and I will reduce the price of the special to $300!

And now, without further ado, here is the beautiful Miss S at 8 months of age. Don’t you love the bonnet and her big smiles?  I know I do!

Sometimes  a baby comes for a session and he or she is not happy.  That was the case with this precious 3-month old yesterday, who was tired and wanted to sleep.  The best thing to do in this situation is to arrange for another session and that’s what we did.

My goal with every session is to get beautiful images for the family to enjoy for years to come and if that goal isn’t met, we redo the session at no extra charge. I’m looking forward to seeing this beautiful little one next week.

But having said that, have a look at how cute she is in these images:

 

Beautiful Little One! (Winnipeg Child Photographers)

Today’s blog post features the beautiful Miss E and also a chair from the 1920’s. Miss E is almost 2 and the chair is about 100 years old. The chair lived at the cabin at Victoria Beach for its whole life but was left out for the winter and it suffered some damage. I managed to give the chair new life by having the legs cut off, painting it and gluing it together. I think it will be very useful in the studio.

Miss E was the first child to use the chair and she made it look amazing. She was a bit shy at first but gave us the most adorable expressions after she warmed up.

Have a look at beautiful Miss E.

Life With Dogs! (Winnipeg Pet Photography)

John, my fiance and I live with 3 dogs; all are rescue dogs with their own distinct personalities. At times life is a bit chaotic, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.

At times we are trapped in a small space as we are here in the car. Could they be any closer?

This is our pack taken on the top of my stairs, the perfect light was shining on their faces. It’s the best time to get a picture of the 3 of them.

ZARA

Zara is my dog and she the most playful. Zara loves find skeletons of dead fish, and bones of animals, as well as many, many toys scattered around my house. She loves Victoria Beach because she can run free and look for treasures. She’s a very active dog and loves her food. In fact, she growls at the other 2 dogs when they are getting fed. One can understand that as she was rescued from a reserve where most of the 2 litters that she was a part of  starved and died. She knows that food is something that can disappear and she’s going to get it! Zara is also very loving and we think she’s brilliant.

FERGUS

This is Fergus, the most gentle of our 3 dogs.  People are sometimes a bit nervous when they first meet him because of  how big he is but he’s a pussy cat. Fergus likes to go for walks and enjoys a good meal, but his main pleasure seems to be helping with the dishes by licking them clean. The odd time Zara can get him to play with her but it’s not often. 

MADDIE

Maddie is our one-eyed dog. She had blastomycosis when she was a puppy and had to have an eye removed. 

Maddie loves to play with Zara and often spends hours cleaning Zara’s ears. Zara seems to enjoy it. The most fun these 2 have is in the lake in the summer. Maddie likes to fetch rocks that we throw into the lake. She can retrieve them from under the water even though she has limited vision.  Maddie is not an active dog but she does like going to walk; just not too far. These 2 are best buddies!

Zara is 3, almost 4, so she should have a lot of years left. Maddie and Fergus are about 10 so they might not have a lot of years left. Losing a dog if the worst part of being a pet owner and we dread that time.

Needless to say we are dog lovers. Neither one of us can imagine life without our dogs. Our dogs, that follow us around wherever we might be; that patiently and quietly sit beside us at the table waiting for scraps to fall and that give us constant affection.

Next post will show some dogs that I photographed (besides my own!).
